Sharing Sweet Stems

I’m thrilled I get to share a sneak preview of the Spring-Summer 2009 Idea Book & Catalog with you today! This is the first card I made with the Sweet Stems set and the luscious Raspberry Tart Designer Series Paper. I used the layout from SCS Sketch Challenge 206; the three circles were perfect for these small floral images. The sentiment from Always in My Thoughts was stamped on Whisper White paper and punched out with the Round Tab punch, then tucked behind the floral panel.

I combined the Rose Red and Kiwi Kiss colors from the Raspberry Tart DSP with Basic Gray, and embellished with some Basic Gray taffeta ribbon.

Thanks for stopping by!
